What is Clearing?

Clearing is a part of the UCAS process and a way for universities or colleges to fill any spaces they have on their courses. It’s also an opportunity for you to secure a place on an alternative course if you’ve changed your mind or if you’ve not previously applied to any university this year. Please read the UCAS Clearing page for more details.  

When does Clearing start?

Clearing starts on 5 July and continues until the end of September. You will need to wait until you receive your exam results before you can apply through Clearing. In the meantime, you can research the courses available through Clearing at Ravensbourne.
